Sight and Sound: Ives & Hartley - Landscapes of Modernism

Leon Botstein and The Orchestra Now

"Ives’s Three Places in New England and the artwork of Marsden Hartley"

In this orchestral set, Connecticut-born composer Charles Ives sets out to evoke through music the atmosphere and history of three locations in New England. His contemporary, Maine-born painter Marsden Hartley, was himself deeply attached to music. The artist returned to Maine in his final years and applied his modernist aesthetic to its landscapes.
